Sensors are in all types of things, like phones, drones, controllers and cars. They turn real-world actions into information your computer can understand.

This is your Motion Sensor. Its job is to detect distance and direction.

It can sense up, down, left, right, forward and back 6

Pick it up‌ look closely. Inside is a tiny chip that talks to your computer.

The chip has two small lenses. The top sends out an infrared beam.

Infrared is a type of light invisible to humans 10


11


When your hand breaks the beam, it gets reflected back to the bottom lens‌

‌so the sensor can tell where your hand is, and where it’s going.

15


The chip turns your motions into binary code, a simple language every computer understands.

In binary, you can only say 1 or 0, which mean “on” and “off.” 16

Great! Now let’s add the suction cup. With this, you can stick your sensor to almost any surface.

It sticks by creating a vacuum in the area it covers 20

Awesome! Now try sticking it to something. If you want to move your sensor, just pull the tab!

Pulling the tab breaks the vacuum 24


25


Now plug in your sensor. It’s universal, which means it works with any computer or Kano Kit!

Your sensor takes power from your computer to work 26
